Snaps of the visit of the Queen Mary 2 to Cochin:

The Queen of the high seas, the largest passenger liner in the world, the Queen Mary 2, docked at Cochin port on 7th March 2007. This was an opportunity that I would not miss. I hired a boat and sailed right up to the Queen. A very pretty sight.

Click the link above to watch this Japanese magician at work. He's really good.

Read this with Chinese eyes:

Try reading the script on the left. If you can't then pull the outer corner of both your eyes (imitating the Chinese).
You will be amazed at what you can now see.

What became of "The sound of music" kids:

The movie “The sound of music” continues to remain an all time favorite. I just it again with my kids and we wanted to know the fate of the Von Trapp family today. I just searched the net and look what I found: a web site that shows snaps of the Von Trapp kids together again, 40 yrs. later (2005): http://www.angela-cartwright.com/som_travels.htm It has a lot of snaps of the “The sound of music” family and interesting links. Angela played the role of one of the kids.
